Sabrina Carpenter Would Love to Return to 'Mean Girls' On Broadway After Pandemic

Sabrina Carpenter wants to go back to Broadway!

In a new interview, the 21-year-old actress and singer says she would love to reprise the role of Cady Heron in Mean Girls when Broadway is back in action.

If you didn’t know, Sabrina was starring in the show when Broadway shut down due to Coronavirus, and she was only able to perform two shows.

“For my personal situation, not comparing it to the rest of the world, which has also been a huge bummer,” Sabrina told AP. “It was two heavy months of really, really tough rehearsals into going to do two shows, and then having a very long break. Now at this point, I feel for the Broadway community that’s definitely at a stand still for the longest that they’ve ever been.”

“I was just so grateful that I got to even accomplish two shows before that all happened, because that was a really big dream of mine,” she continued. “I hope to go back when everything comes back. Fingers crossed.”

Sabrina‘s Work It co-star Jordan Fisher was also starring on Broadway in Dear Evan Hansen when the pandemic hit.

Jordan Fisher Heads Back To Broadway For Starring Role in 'Dear Evan Hansen'

Jordan Fisher is heading back to Broadway in Dear Evan Hansen!

The 25-year-old actor, singer and dancer will star as the title character in the musical, beginning Tuesday, January 28th for a limited 16-week engagement.

“Evan Hansen is a 16-course meal for an actor. The complexity of this boy is akin to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in my opinion,” Jordan shared in a statement about his new role.

He adds, “I doubt I’ll ever forget the first time I sat in the Music Box to see it, and the idea of being a part of that memory for others is mind-blowing. I’m so honored to join this amazing company.”

If you don’t know, Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of an anxiety-plagued high school loner named Evan who is paralyzed by the hyper-connectivity of social media and forced to watch the world from the outside looking in. Trying to improve his self-image, Evan writes himself a letter that is mistaken for a classmate’s suicide note and rides that error to popularity.

Previously, Jordan made his Broadway debut in Hamilton as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.
